President Obama Named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2012
Editor Richard Stengel says Obama is being recognized for "finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union." He added that it was remarkable that the president won two terms with over 50 percent of the popular vote as a Democrat, and noted that Obama took office in an economic crisis, and credited him with creating a new political "alignment like Ronald Reagan did forty years ago".
Other finalists and runners-ups also profiled include: Pakistan women's rights activist Malala Yousafzai), Apple CEO Tim Cook, Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi, and Higgs boson physicist Fabiola Gianotti.
